Are you a new blogger that is trying to make a name for themselves?
Are you trying to establish a presence online but still don’t know how?
Well, I’ve been there too, and have gone through all of that struggle too!
When I started blogging, I had people tell me that my writing sucks! That it wasn’t up to their standards, and that it was better for me to give up than to continue writing!
And well, what do we say to the gods of criticism? Not today.
Thankfully I didn’t give in to the temptation of quitting, because I knew there was something else waiting for me! I knew I had it in me to continue and to make money, and so I did.
As a brand-new blogger, one of the worst things that can be thrown at you is “an awful writer”.
It stuck with me, hard.
But I didn’t give in, and that’s what matters. So, if people are criticizing you and telling you to just quit your blog, then just remember that I asked you not to give up! There is a light at the end of the tunnel, just reach for it.
Anyway, in order to help you out today, I decided to share with you my three blog writing tips that helped me refine my writing skills, and become who I am today.
3 Blog Writing Tips for Amazing Blog Posts
When writing a blog post, there are a lot of things to consider and a lot of things to keep in mind.
There’s promoting on social media, SEO, using email marketing, using Pinterest, and so many other things.
But what remains important, is the writing itself.
Writing a blog post is one of the most important tasks you’ve got to do as a blogger. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got one blog post on your blog, or if you’re preparing 30 blog posts before you launch your blog.
What’s most important is that you need to have high-quality articles on your blog. So, how can you actually write a high-quality one?
Answer A Question
The first thing your blog needs to do is to answer a question. People out there are asking questions every day. And someone needs to be there for them and answer them.
That is why your content needs to provide an answer to their problems. You need to help them figure out how to get from point A to point B without struggling too much.
Just like what I’m doing right now, I’m providing you how to get from A (not knowing how to write blog posts) to point B (how to become a better blogger).
Why go through all of this trouble? Because every time someone reads your blog post, they ask themselves, what’s in it for me? Which is why you need to give them the “why” they’re there for.
By proving an answer to a question that people ask more than often, you create an evergreen content that will be relevant for many years to come.
Find A Topic With Answer The Public
Answer the public is an online tool that will help you generate the keywords people are using in order to find an answer to their questions.
This tool can help you find thousands of blog topics to target by simply entering one term in the tool and seeing the suggestions.
It’s the easiest tool you can use and it’s perfect for beginners who are still having trouble finding blog topics to tackle.
Find A Topic With Pinterest
Pinterest is another search engine that can help you immensely when starting out. I personally used it on various occasions to come up with topic ideas for my blog.
50% of the blogs I’ve written so far are all influenced by Pinterest and are meant for Pinterest users as well.
When you log in to Pinterest, there’s a big search bar on top that you can use in order to search for a certain term.
With that being said, you can use that search bar to research a keyword and find an abundance of topics to discuss.
Underneath the search bar, you’ll find other keywords suggestions classified by the volume of search they have.
That way you can tell which topics are more commonly searched for when compared to others.
Use Facebook Groups To Come Up With Topics
If you have a Facebook group for your blog that has a decent number of followers, then it can certainly arbor a lot of topic ideas.
I personally have a Facebook group that you can join here where you can ask me your questions directly and get them answered quickly.
If you don’t have a Facebook group, then you can join other Facebook groups related to your niche and skim through the posts until you find questions to answer.
This strategy is certainly a go-getter and will help you come up with a decent number of blog posts for your website.
Use Bucket Brigades
I’ve already spoken about bucket brigades before, but let me give you a small reminder of what they are in case you didn’t read my blog post about them.
Bucket brigades are a copywriting trick and tactic that makes readers want more of your blog and hence stay longer.
Bucket brigades come in the form of a question, a partial phrase, of a short idea which flow stops in the middle of a sentence.
You then continue the flow in a second sentence this way you make the users stay longer on your website.
So, essentially, bucket brigades…
Are meant to help you lower your bounce rate and make your readers more loyal. And I just used one if you noticed.
They’re usually used at the beginning of your blog but can be used throughout the middle as well in order to keep them interested.
Great Headlines Make A Difference
Headlines are as important as the content. If you’re able to create amazing headlines, then you’ll be able to bring visitors and traffic to your blog.
So, how can you write a compelling blog post? Simply follow the rule of the 4 U’s. The 4 U’s will help you improve your writing skills and become a better marketer as well!
- Urgency: The more you make your title urgent, the more you’ll tempt users to click on it and check it.
- Usefulness: If you make your title look useful and have a keyword, users are using to find an answer to their questions then users will see how it’s important and will click it.
- Uniqueness: If other bloggers are tackling the same topics as you, then you need to differentiate from them. How? By choosing a unique title.
- Ultra-specificness: Your title needs to be very specific in terms of what you have to offer. This way users will know what to expect when they click on your link.
Now let’s see, let’s take an example of a title that I liked:
As you can see, their title is different than the other ones, they clearly have a useful and ultra-specific title in terms of what they have to offer, and they make it look it urgent.
So, do you know the formula for an effective title?
